Rome, July 30 - The government in November will
review a national action plan against racism and intolerance
prepared by Integration Minister Cecile Kyenge, the same
minister said Tuesday.
"The plan we're working on comes from requests from civil
society," said Kyenge, who is collaborating with Junior Minister
Cecilia Guerra on the project.
"Given recent acts of racism and violence, I believe it's
time to apply legislative measures that already exist and, if
necessary, to reinforce them.
"Before making new laws, let's start applying the ones we
have".
Since her appointment in April, the Congolese-born minister
has been the victim of repeated outbursts of racism, especially
by members of the anti-immigrant Northern League.
Earlier Tuesday Kyenge called on the party's leader,
Lombardy Governor Roberto Maroni, to forcefully condemn the
slurs against her, which by now she finds "intolerable".
